Male 41, Need advice for my blood profile.
« on: July 20, 2017, 05:45:18 pm »
Hey guys I would like some advice on my blood panel. I started TRT after I had a blood test level of 50 and now at .3ml of test cyp injected once a week my levels are .383. I've attached my blood work, any tips or advice would be much appreciated. My estradiol is pretty high also at 65. I also started giving whole blood to bring down the red blood cells.
T3: 3.46
T4: .73
Test: 383
TSH: 1.64
Red blood cell: 5.98
Hemoglobin: 17.4
Hemotocrit: 52.2

I'm not a doctor, but I can tell you for sure that hematocrit and hemoglobin needs to be addressed soon either by lowering your dose or donating blood. I'm not really sure about your test levels .383 what lab or unit of measurement is that?

I'd be careful before adding an AI.
Unless that 65pg/ml was measured using the sensitive estradiol test then that number really doesn't mean much honestly.
Definitely need to get hematocrit down for sure.
60mg per week is what I"m assuming you're injecting?
That's an extremely low dose and probably isn't ever going to get you into optimal range.
A good starting point would be 50mg every 3.5 days.

A few comments and questions:

--Cam you post the ranges for T3/T4 (and units)?

--Did you talk to your doctor about donating blood?

--That's not much cypionate for once per week, although some guys (including myself) have tried lower dosages such as yourself.  I'm assuming you are using 200 mg/ml of testosterone cypionate, right?

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

I started donating blood and in fact have a donation in the 27th.
I am currently on 50mcg of Levothyroxine as I had thyroid antibodies and my T4 was .73
I was on .3ml of Testosterone Cyp on these labs but they bumped me up to .6ml as my optimal Test levels should be 800.
